I removed AVG and can't get rid of the AVG secure search.  Found a message about it, but didn't work for me.  I tried to remove it through settings, to no avail.  I performed AdwCleaner and it found some things, but not that.  When downloading a convert mp4 to mp3, I must have missed that.  There were like 6 different things that were declined and how this one slid by me is beyond me.   Though the report says it deleted the folder "Reimage"  there is still something left from it in control panel / programs file.  I can find nothing about AVG in the control panel programs file.   Here is the cleaner report:
